I believe the trees were outsourced.
It is based on the EG Herrick.http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?75623-Edward-Green-Herrick-Anyone-have-a-pairBestetti has made something similar as well.More pics of it here in the Bestetti thread.http://www.styleforum.net/t/251332/riccardo-bestetti-bespoke-projects/1020_30#post_7165525
I think the decision should be between shawl DB vs peak SB + vest. If your tailor doesn't think he can make a good DB shawl for you, go with the peak SB. I think the peak lapels give the illusion of broader shoulders than notch or fishmouth. P.S. if tall lanky Manton can look broad shouldered in his shawl lapel DB tux, perhaps you should ask Manton for his tailor.
I like del frisco's for steak but is borderline for your budget. The one on 1221 6th ave is a nice location. There is a less formal del Friscos grill nearby.
This is the grain side out kudu.I think suede buckskin or similar deer suede is hard to find these days, even when doing bespoke. G&G said they have some Chinese buckskin. Generally G&G has more variety of kid suede but it is very soft and has to be reinforced.
Congrats on the good find. I wonder if the leather is cordovan.
Yeah. Perhaps Canta should change his avatar. Occasionally I think Canta is behaving oddly and then I notice the username.

Cool. Now it makes sense that he's a magician. I wonder if they'll do something similar at the NYC event.
If you ever make it over to Salerno, check out Cappelleria Russo Giosue. I got a Montecristi from there last summer. The hat buyer at Paul Stuart liked it so much he started giving me advice on its upkeep.
